Ruin: A Hip h’Opera
Presented by Yirra Yaakin
With the flow of jazz, the soul of blues, the energy of electro and the power of funk Ruin – A Hip h’Opera uses the language of hip hop to tackle a tough issue currently affecting our society – the plague of methamphetamine use.
Join us as we explore the journey of Ice addiction in all its states, including happiness, invincibility and clarity, through to despair, fear, psychosis and, ultimately, the breakdown of our communities – their ruin.
With an assembled team that boasts some of Western Australia’s best artists, Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company have partnered with Australian Hip Hop kings Downsyde , solo hip hop maestro MC Trooth and WA Hip Hop queen MC Layla to explore a very timely subject and ultimately ask the question: if meth use continues to escalate within our communities, what is going to happen to our society as a whole?
